Description
Overview
Fortress River is a Fortress-style no rush random map. Players start with walls, gates, and towers to protect their starting area. However, aside from a few forage bushes, all the resources a player needs will be outside the safety of their fortress. Thick forest hampers direct travel, and the only way to access your enemies is across a large river with broad patches of shallows which are challenging to defend. WIll you cross the river and expand your dominion? Or will the trees swallow your civilisation whole?

Key random factors:
-River position and orientation will vary
-Shallows may vary in position and number
-Team land areas may become large islands
-There may be extra sheep or relics
-Dogs can fly

AI Behaviour:
The standard AI has no problem playing Fortress river, and makes an excellent opponent!

Strategy:
-Use warships and transports effectively
-Explore carefully, and be sure to keep an eye on your immediate area - enemies can sneak up on you through narrow paths in the forests
-Defend the shallows
-Cavalry excel here with their speed and armour

If you wish to develop your own random map scripts, there are links and comments inside the .RMS file.

About Random Maps:
Random Maps are different every time you play them; the script defines rules about the environment and units etc, and the game engine randomises the placement of terrain and units based upon these rules. It's a new experience every time!

To play this map:
1. Open the Single Player or Multi Player game lobby
2. Change Game to Random Map
3. Change Type to Custom
4. Change Map to Fortress River V1

Done! There are a few variations, although you'll have to peer at the map to see them :)

Monkey Did: Glad you approve! If you play enough you may see what I meant.

Ms_Kiko: I'll look into it when I have some time. I haven't seen the AI get stuck before but there have been changes to the AI lately.

i noticed when doing the map it sometimes blocks you out of all resources (gates being blocked by all trees whichi s fine for me i can get buy it but cpus cant... and kinda ruins
Ms_Kiko Aug 13 @ 10:35am

Ms_Kiko: What difficulty are you playing? The AI is normally very good at this map.
